The Old Woman Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle

By (author) Rumer Godden; Illustrated by Mairi Hedderwick

The Old Woman is happy living in her modest vinegar bottle house by the loch, until one day she saves a charming fish prince who grants her wishes in return.At first the Old Woman’s wishes are humble — a hot dinner and a little cottage — but as she asks for more and more extravagant things she forgets how happy she used to be in her little vinegar bottle house with her cat, Malt. Can her wishes truly bring her happiness?This delightful adaptation of a traditional Grimm’s tale is set in the Scottish Highlands. The lightly humourous story by Rumer Godden, one of the twentieth-century’s best-loved writers, blends beautifully with the charming artwork of best-selling illustrator Mairi Hedderwick, creator of Katie Morag.Featuring beautiful Scottish landscapes and lively characters, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Vinegar Bottle is a wonderful traditional tale to share with young children.
